Buyer’s Group B– March 26th, at The Farm…

Business Card

We have expanded this week’s order to better meet the needs of our members, new and old.  We are still able to stock lots of EXTRA’s to purchase:  fruits, additional veggies, greens, herbs, nuts, gingerroot and garlic.  We are also adding Brown Eggs (1 dozen limit per member), Medjool dates and raisins, and taking orders for white flour for next week! 

Paul, the Spokane Produce Sales Rep, says there is not a shortage of food, and my shortage last week was due to rains in Arizona, California, and Washington.  He also added with the slow down of school and restaurant orders a shift will occur as the market adjusts to different buying patterns.  He checked our order on Tuesday, which was being filled for delivery today, and things are looking GOOD!

Boxes this week:  2# ORG Lemons and Avocado, ORG Spinach (Greybull Valley Living Lettuce), 1# Asparagus, Cauliflower (ORG Brussels Sprouts), Cucumber (ORG Orange Bell Pepper), ORG Yellow Sweet Onion, and 4# ORG Yukon Potatoes (Red Potatoes)–Cost $30, and includes info sheet.

Reminder of our guidelines-

  1. We are wiping down the doorknob and handles that are touched the most, and keeping our hands as clean as possible.  Money is probably the biggest issue, so keep that in mind and wash your hands after handling.  Remember to wash your produce before you use it–Not a bad habit considering how far it has traveled and through so many hands.  (Unlike our garden goodies in the CSA which are from The Farm right into your own hands!)
  2. We seldom have more than 10 in the Shelter at any one time.  Keep a reasonable distance between folks.  If you must sneeze, sneeze outside the group, away from the food items and other folks.  If you are sick, or feel that you may be coming down with the flu or a cold, don’t come to the Shelter.  (See #3)
  3. Two choices for Pickup/Delivery:  Text 431-1219 when you arrive at The Farm to have us deliver your  box to your vehicle outside the Shelter.  OR Text 431-1219 before 3:00 for in-town or at home delivery ($3.50 delivery fee).
  4. If you are not wanting food this week, let me know by noon so that I can sell the box to another person.

See you at The Farm for the Buyer’s Group Members and our regular shoppers, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.  Thursday’s only, 1049 Washakie Ten, Worland….Take some time to sign up for the CSA that will start in July and runs all summer into the fall.  Discounted price if paid before May 15th!  (CSA requires payment in full before the season starts–this helps us fund the garden which is already in production in the greenhouse!)

As always, getting you good food for healthy bodies to build a healthy community, one body at a time.  Per Dr. Fuhrman, author of Super Immunity, a healthy body can make a lot of changes in adapting to new viruses.  A micronutrient deficient body may not have what it needs to conquer the flu, let alone a new virus strain.  Keep perspective:  Coronavirus is not a death wish, the majority of the folks survive, but those with compromised immunity are at the greatest risk.
